Notes/Commercial Description:
A superb porter, hearty & dark. This one is a staff favorite, made with pale, crystal, Munich, chocolate, and black malts. The darker malts give Coal its color and rich flavor. We use Target and Willamette hops to yield a very subtle hop flavor in this porter.

We cellar this beer for close to six months before releasing it on the thirsty throngs of fans.

12 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown with a short off-white head. Minimal lace.

Aroma: This beer has a slightly smokey, tobacco-like aroma surrounding black coffee and dark chocolate malt notes.

Taste: The coffee and dark chocolate are right there, and the beer has the pleasant hop bitterness in the background. A hint of smoke, as in the nose.

Mouthfeel: Not a super dense beer. Approachable amount of thickness. Also very smooth.

Overall: Very nice porter. This brewery does darker beers well.

If you like head, get this beer. The head is overwhelming. Porter itself is solid, but I had to wait several minutes after the initial pour to allow the head to relax.

Had it at on tap at the brewery; good porter, very smooth. Matched well with a heaping plate of pulled pork at the adjoining restaurant.
